Because Hands On Learning Is Best

This week St. Roch students experienced “hands-own” learning as Mr. Shaver bought seventh grade students (above) to Washington University to experience a university level science lab and Mrs. Miller bought her sixth grade class to Junior Achievement Biz Town to gain some real-life experiences. Also this week, (not pictured) our Mrs. Long and Miss Patty (Spanish Teacher) escorted our eighth graders to an authentic Mexican Restaurant so that they could put their Spanish acquisition into action. Thank you to all of the parent chaperones that make these learning experiences possible.

St. Roch "Nets" Giving Record!

Words cannot describe how awesome our St. Roch Families and Community is! Thank you so much for your participation in the Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart program this year! Not only did St. Roch do a great job in raising money to help fund lifesaving research into heart disease and stroke for the American Heart Association, but you went above and beyond to make this a record setting year! 

The final total St. Roch collected is $10,400!!!

Congratulations to the 3rd grade, who won a pizza party for raising the most money for Jump Rope forHeart with $2,933.00 and the 5th grade, which raised $2,016.00 to win tickets to the May 4th baseball game!
